A Little Vampire Saves the Day in Vampoo

Nothing tugs at the heartstrings of even the most callous person quite like the plight of a tiny bug-eyed vampire bat whose significant other has a nasty habit of being kidnapped, right? Well it was that scenario which prompted XDA Forum Member SveGa to set about writing his latest game for the Android platform.

Inspired by games such as Super Meat Boy and Mario Arcade, Vampoo is a fairly straight forward, yet challenging side scroller. Although admittedly, it scrolls in all directions. The aim of the game is to guide our eponymous hero through the various (and increasingly challenging) levels, dodging rusty saw blades and falling rocks while using objects in the surrounding environment to clear a path to the goal. Ultimately, you’ll end up in a challenging boss fight, trying to win back your captive sweetheart and providing you can make it that far without being sliced up like bacon.

This is an open beta released to forums by the developer, so there may be some bugs. However, I certainly didn’t encounter any while playing the game. Available from the forums completely ad-free and running on Android 2.2 and upwards, this game is certainly worth checking out if you want something to pass a few minutes here and there.

Head over to the forum thread for more information.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
